Pentax K30 - "crippled" K5?

I read a comment recently in one of the forums (I cannot remember which) that the new K30 is basically a "crippled K5." I have no personal experience with Pentax cameras but in my research I noted that the K30 supposedly has improved AF features as well as focus peaking. While it is true that the K30 does not have all the features of the K5, I was surprised at this comment. Is it the consensus of the community that K30 is a lesser version of the K5?

As a casual photographer, I am interested in both cameras and given that they are currently at the same price point I am not sure which way to go on this.

Thanks!
